Of course this month Birchbox would be centred around love...what else for the month of Valentines. Yet this isn't just for those loved up, Birchbox have designed this months box to join in with the love regardless. Good job, as I was ready not open this love box. Which is another point, the box. Its been on a January slim down and has entered February a slimmer version of itself that will fit through a standard sized letterbox. Meaning no more 'sorry you were out' delivery cards. Samples in both the large and slimmer boxes will be exactly the same, and the drawstring bag has been replaced with tissue paper. Shame, I did warm to those bags. To ease the pain there is also a teaser for March's box, which is apparently a Benefit sample...but lets see what is inside this February box....
Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum | One I've seen floating around, especially in Space N.K so this is very welcomed. My skin is in dire need of something at the moment, so I am hoping this serum will be the one to give my skin that life I am after.
Cynthia Rowley Eyeliner in Black | Never heard of this brand, but I'm not one to turn down a black eyeliner, especially one that is as creamy as this.
T London Hand & Body Lotion | Again, a brand I've not heard of (have I been living under a rock recently?), and not that I need any more body lotion, my winter dried out hands can do with this addition in my handbag.
Liz Earle Botanical Shine Shampoo | I always forget Liz Earle do actually have other items aside from the Hot Cloth cleanser, so its nice to try something else from this brand. I've only used this the once, and I must say I am impressed so I have high hopes for this little tube.
The Balm Cindy-Lou Manizer | Is there anyone who hasn't tried this? Seems not. So I am glad I can be with the 'in crowd' now. And hopefully I'll have a new highlighter for makeup bag, if I don't lose this teeny sample in the meantime.
The Chia Co. Oats + Chia | A lifestyle extra in the form of a healthy porridge. And while this is better than the green tea in the January Birchbox, its still not chocolate like the Montezuma Chocolate in the November box. (Good job I don't work in Birchbox H.Q, could you imagine how unhealthy everyone would be?) I am a bit rubbish with porridge admittedly as I lack the patience for the two minutes it takes to microwave, but I will make sure this packet is different. Or just have it for dessert or something. That still counts right?
So the slimmer box doesn't really bother me either way as my postman either forced it through my letterbox or just left it on the doorstep. But I guess its better to know it will be safely waiting inside for me. Content wise, I feel this box is a bit too full of samples and not many fuller size items, yet I do love all the samples so I am just being picky. I am keen to see what the March box brings, while of course silently wishing for a bar chocolate.
